Hello there!

Welcome to my little corner of the ether. This is where you will find information about my books and musings on life and love in New York City. To stay in the loop about all things ADR...


So. I've been oddly in love with donuts and croissants lately. And I've been eating them, too. The cool thing is that I haven't been gaining, but losing weight. I think this is because I'm eating what I want when I'm hungry and not overdoing it. I think it has helped that I haven't stopped moving in weeks - writing words, shuttling the girls to and fro, planning and hosting and attending parties, etc. It seems all of these things burn a calorie or two.

Anyway, I realize that it's not all about being skinny, but about being healthy. And so. When I arrived at Coffee Bean this morning, instead of ordering the pastry I wanted, I opted for a non-fat blueberry Greek yogurt. I was proud of myself for this. I also ordered a decaf coffee because I concluded that I was sufficiently caffeinated for the time being. This, too, made me proud because I have been known to overdo it on the caffeine and also have been known to make fun of decaf-drinkers. Alas, I'm evolving.

Anyway, the funny thing is that they forgot about my decaf and I stood there waiting for some time. Finally, I asked about it and I was met with a look of surprise and then there was some scrambling and within a few moments, I was clutching my decaf. I walked away to find a table to write and heard them calling for me. I turned around and the cashier was waving a little brown bag at me. What's this? I asked as she handed it to me. A blueberry scone. Sorry for the wait on your coffee.

I smiled. And I took the scone and settled in at my little table. And I opened my computer and, still smiling at the screen, I wrote these words. It seems that the universe is telling me to keep eating pastries. At least I got the blueberry part right.

No need to comment on this post unless you have some deep thoughts on pastries, but if you have a moment, please read this and let me know what you think. Thanks, guys!
